Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero says he could move on this summer if he fails to dislodge England international Joe Hart as the club’s number one, The Sun report.
The Argentine stopper recently made a name for himself in City colours, saving three penalties as Manuel Pellegrini’s men defeated Liverpool in a dramatic League Cup final penalty shootout.
However, in spite of his heroics, Caballero was immediately dropped to the bench for City’s defeat at Liverpool as regular number one Joe Hart returned to the starting line-up for league fixtures.
It’s a tough situation for Caballero, and the former Malaga man admits he may look to join another Premier League club in the summer if he continues to deputise as Hart’s number two.
“I’m not thinking about moving back to Argentina. I’m enjoying my moment here. I would like to keep playing here at Man City,” he explained.
"But if I can’t play regularly for Man City, then I would like to play for another team here in the Premier League.”
"It’s tough to be the second goalkeeper. But since I joined Man City I have been fighting for the spot.”
Caballero undoubtedly showcased his talents during City’s League Cup final win, yet there are question marks over other aspects of his game such as communication and organisation.
He was a key player for Pellegrini during his stint at Malaga, yet new incoming boss Pep Guardiola may have other ideas as the popular Spanish coach likes his goalkeepers to be able to play it out.
During his time at City, Caballero has managed just Premier League appearances.
